We’re excited to announce the Northwest Coalition for Healthy Intimacy’s 2014 “Restoring Intimacy” Conference!
This year’s event will be held in Portland, OR on September 13, 2014.
The Northwest Coalition for Healthy Intimacy is an organization dedicated to empowering and supporting adults, teens, children, families and communities in building healthy relationships and educating about the negative effects of pornography and unhealthy sexualization.
During this conference, experts will discuss how sexualized media alters the brain and how couples can effectively work together to:
- improve emotional, spiritual and physical intimacy in your relationships
- promote emotional health and wholeness in a home environment
- heal or protect families from addiction
- let go of toxic shame and foster honesty, transparency, understanding and forgiveness in our homes and communities
